Re: Does this look fishy?

The bike just fell over and sustained enough damage to be totaled by the insurance company? WTF?

Re: Does this look fishy?

Looks legit to me The price is about right, even though it's salvage. It'll make a perfect track bike for someone

Re: Does this look fishy?

How much could the damage have been, money-wise, if it's as he stated? Maybe a thousand or two at the most?? I thought insurance companies totalled a bike when the damage was more than the blue book value. If that's the case, how can scratched plastics on a brand-new bike amount to enough damage that the insurance company considered it totalled? Seems a bit odd to me, too.

Re: Does this look fishy?

If there is 1 scratch on the swingarm, the insurance adjuster can elect to replace it. Same for the frame. For the wheels. Etc Etc...

Seems legit to me.

Re: Does this look fishy?

Jeez, one scratch, huh? I guess that makes some sense, since you'd want it returned to original condition after an accident, I guess that's what insurance is for. No wonder rates are so high, though, when a new bike is totalled for some scratches....

Agreed, but he states that no damage was done to the frame or swingarm.
